with us tom horn who is our chairman of our sister city committee which has many exchanges which we're going hear about more of them today, mayor lee, you have been mayor for almost two years, and as you know, the mayor of paris has been mayor for 11 years, and look how young he is, so there's hope for you. we have just had a meeting inside and the mate -- mayor has made a promise which tom and i and matthew, we're going to make sure he keeps that promise and he says, next year, we're going to paris, so tom horn and i are going to be the advanced team, we're leaving with the mayor on a sunday when he goes back. so, may i introduce our mayor, a newer mayor than the mayor of paris but one we are proud of and we will be hoping that he is planning the trip very soon, so may i present mayor lee. [applause]. >> thank you, charlotte. >> well, thank you, everybody, for coming here today. as you can see, there was excitement in the air when the mayor of paris comes to san francisco and i want to welcome him, i want to welcome the council general office as well, this is an exciting moment fo
city. a specialist in francisco. >> the problem with san francisco is that women's suffrage as an idea was associated. >> susan b. anthony joined the provision party. a deadly idea in san francisco. liquor was the foundation of the economy. and >> anything that touched on the possibility of prohibition was greatly and popular. >> the first campaign was a great effort, but not a success. >> the war was not over. less than one decade later, a graphic protests brought new life to the movement. >> women's suffrage, the republican convention in oakland, this time it was the private sector response. 300 marched down the streets of the convention center. women were entitled to be here. >> joining together for another campaign. >> women opened a club in san francisco. it was called the votes for women club. if she could get the shopkeepers to have lunch, she could get them to be heard literature. the lunch room was a tremendous success. >> it was the way that people thought about women willing to fight for a successful campaign. what happened was, the social transformation increase the boundar
thoughts on the city's economic development? are we on the right track? what would you like to change about the city's approach to developing economies? >> in the chair of the land use committee this year, and i was vice chair last year with our former chair from the bayview hunters point area. i guess i approach land use and economic development from a different perspective. i'm not against development, but i want it to be equitable so we look at the lowest income populations or even middle income populations so that residents have a strong say as development moves forward, whether it is the park ridge said development in the southern, western part of the city or even treasure island with there's many low-income families that currently live there. but it is a strong voice for the residents that currently are there. we also want to see new people moving into the city, and hopefully, we focus also on families and housing that provides better homes and home opportunities for families, but i always say that i support equitable development. i also do feel that big business and downtown interest
leaders in the business community including and particularly small business advocates around the city to make sure this was carefully crafted. so i really do hope voters will support this consensus measure with proposition e because it's good measure for jobs, it's a good measure for our city, it's a good measure to make sure san francisco continues to inknow 78 and continue to employ all san franciscoans. >> starchild, how would you like to conclude? >> again, when you hear bi-partisan compromise at city hall, hold on to your walts as the saying goes. obviously the libertarian party didn't have a seat at the table and i don't feel like tax opponents in general -- proponents of people keeping more of their money they earn really had a seat at the table with this. mayor lee's initial proposal wasn't bad. he wanted to make it revenue neutral but the measure got modified through the back door dealing, things got changed and we round up with a revenue non-neutral measure. again, payroll tax is bad. i'm all for getting rid of it. everything else being equal, i'm sure it would result in m
of not just the city tradition but the san francisco giants tradition. since we have been in the new ball park, it has been played a total of 573 times after giants wins, including playoff wins and including world series wins. [applause] importantly, you know, we almost lost the giants. in 1993, we made some desperate calls to tony when the team was saved, and we asked tony -- there is only one person that could kick off the new generation, the new era of giants baseball on opening day in 1993, and that was tony bennett. he sang "god bless america" and "i left my heart in san francisco" on that date. it was an unbelievable day. it brought down the house, as did your performance at the all- star game. as did your performance at the world series. you are a huge part of the san francisco giants. as we all know, you have not arrived until you have your own bobblehead. [laughter] last year, we created a created abobblehea -- a tony bennett bobblehead for tony bennett night. it has a voice chip, and when you push the head, it sings "i left my heart in san francisco." tony painte
. the violence is down. a variety of entertainment is what makes our city great. we will touch on the upcoming party legislation -- party bus legislation and a safe place for our youth to go. after our panel discussion will have some regard groups so we can share ideas and brainstorm. we have a very luminary panel here. right now, i would like to introduce our cheap -- chief of police. [applause] >> good afternoon. i also am not john newlin, and i have less hair than him. [laughter] is a pleasure to be here for the second year. there are fewer people here. that might be because it has been a good year. as audrey suggests i believe that is because of partnership is up. we want to be a police department that you are comfortable calling before anything happens with out fear of having us say, no, we are going to shut it down. we want to work with you to make it happen, but it means as safely as possible. certainly, alcohol always played a role as well as the age of the patrons, and on and on. again, please give us a chance to further develop the trust that we have been building over the last sever
to be introduced by commissioner kim on a supplemental appropriation from the city. >> i am sorry, what did i call her? >> supervisor. >> commissioner. >> and then we had a conversation about some potential future agenda items. i think that one of the things that deputy superintendent lee and i are working on trying to do is to have regular update sos that we are not trying to cram everything in april and may when we are making decisions around the budget but instead start highlighting the pieces and having conversations around some of the key issues. and so he has sent that list, we will be sending that list to all of you, and we would appreciate it if you would just run through it and see if there are particular items of interest that could help you think about what the next budget cycle will be looking like. >> great. thank you. >> i just wanted to thank you for the... i just got tonight, i mean that i just picked up out of my mail box the report of the mandated costs issue of the item that i requested and i don't... i mean that i am going to guess that nobody is thinking about this but i am go
and efficient way. we work together on the program as smart cities where we want san francisco -- other cities to be modern cities but also civilized cities which means that consider that everything we wish for as far as economic development is concerned must consider the environment also, and the quality of the planet on which we live. with mr. lee, we talked about all these questions and of course we are going encourage all of these new companies and everything that enables us to improve our cities and make them a better place to live and less polluted place to live, as may it in transportation, management of energy, in san francisco and in paris, there are innovations that are certainly ahead of many other cities in the world and i want to learn from san francisco and of course paris is there for the san francisco team, may it be a development of electric transportation or automobiles or [inaudible] or the reuse of energy of heat to heat private buildings or public building by using waste water, i explained to mayor lee that a couple of years now, i worked with bill clinton on the isolation

[applause] >> hello. welcome to "meet your district supervisor." we are here with supervisor mar, who was elected in 2008 and is about halfway through his first term. we will get to know them and talk about the toughest issues they have been facing. welcome, supervisor. thank you for joining us. let's start by talking about your background, where you grew up. >> i grew up in sacramento, california, in the south area. went to public schools. ended up in uc-davis. made my way out to san francisco when i was a college student, and i sat in the class is in san francisco state as well, and i remember growing up at that time around clement street. we call the richmond district the new chinatown in the 1980's at that time. just being around th

>> i may permit consultant in the city. i want to thank you for coming to this because it shows that you really care. i want to ask you a question. some of then transfers for an eatery that serves beer and wine to patrons, when someone wants to transfer or someone else wants to buy the license, if it says on there now live music or no entertainment, and the new person that -- no live music or no entertainment, and the new person that purchases it, they want to modify the conditions. they realize if a petition to modify the conditions, they run the risk of maybe not having the license transfer to them should the modifications be declined. some of these laws on the books a little archaic, and i will give you an example. we now have live entertainment in san francisco, which allows amplified music until 10:00 p.m. if the conditions has no entertainment, and the entertainment, it also includes this limited live provision. we have determined in the city that this legislation is good -- good legislation. there's no conditional use requirement to have this. a lot of people today want t
is a plan for transportation in the city through the year 2040. the cta is the designated congestion management agency. the plan projects there will be an additional 101,000 households in san francisco by the year 2040 and an additional 191,000 new workers. they have an online survey tool, asking the public how do you want to spend the transportation dollars so the web site is sfcta.gov/mybudget. so sfcta.org/my budget. there's a related web site which is movesmartsf.com. then finally committee members discussed their experiences with transportation and physical access to the sites of the america's cup and fleet week, both in early october and also in august. roland wong, council member wong particularly had a lot of input which he has also given to the mta next meeting will be friday, november 9, from 1.30 to 3.30 at city hall, room 421. that brings me to the segue. this was my last meeting and as i think the council members know, i have resigned. technically today is my last day. i'd like to read the letter that you wrote, you all have a copy of it but for the benefit of the peop
of mesoamerica, the ancient maya created magnificent city-states. here three million people once lived. in the earliest cradle of civilization, ancient mesopotamian farmers once made these deserts bloom. halfway around the world, in california, are clues to understanding the fall of mesopotamia, as farmers here struggle to overcome a threat to this fertile garden land. the ruins of ancient societies may hold keys to our own survival as, out of the past, archaeologists explore one of the greatest of mysteries -- the decline and fall of grand civilizations. mission control: ignition... and liftoff. liftoff... keach: for more than five millennia, humankind has seemed to dominate earth, both creating and destroying grand civilizations. each of these human experiments has changed our planet. this high vantage point brings us a new and sobering view. for the first time, we behold our world as finite, limited. on the darkened face of earth, the lights of cities record the expansion of our kind. just 50 years ago, two billion people lived on earth. today our global population has reached five
development and forest city. >> regarding the water front site and the city develop. as you know for the past several months, forest city has been working very hard on the due diligence process for the 25 acres working with them to understand the various soils and water conditions on the site and other information that will feed into for the infrastructure and the plans that they will present to you all at a subsequent meeting. there is also, begun, an extensive out reach program to get feedback from dog pest community and other key stake holders that will also feed into their planning and the eventual plans that they will make available to you. the plans builds on the experience that they have and mixed development throughout the country, but specifically, related to their efforts in san francisco, and their admission and development that has a similar approach and will have a good, prototype for the kind of things that they want to do at the pier 70. >> in addition, i wanted to talk just briefly about the hill site. now the hill site has not been offered for development. we are not moving f
, but different units in the city that have come forward to shed light on this issue. i also want to thank supervisor kim and her staff, who have been dealing with this issue from the moment that she got elected. and i think that this legislation is in many respects, you know, not the culmination, but it adds to the body of work that already has been done and we need to continue to monitor this. so i'm very proud to be a co-sponsor. i think it's one of those pieces of legislation that is truly a no-brainer and my hope is that it will go forward to the full board where in my hope there will be a unanimous vote to pass this legislation. and it's a long time coming and i also think that we need to make sure that we continue to monitor it closely. so i also want to say as the district 9 supervisor that i'm very grateful to the work of the people from my district, who have been fighting to eradicate bed bugs for a long time. and i like the slogan that was chanted out that, "bed bugs suck." [ laughter ] and i think that sedsays it all. thank you. >> thank you, supervisor campos. supervisor fa
young people visit zoos, but in san francisco, there is a multibillion night life industry in the city and a lot of people who really like to get out in the evening and participate in activities like this. i would just like to strongly urge that the zoo do another event like this one and partner with the entertainment commission and some of the other night life industry people in the city to help get the word out. i wasn't aware that this event happened in san francisco but absolutely have a network of people who would have loved to attend it and i think it's a great way for people who niekt not have kids or a reason to go to the zoo k to venture that, check it out and become lifetime participants of the zoo. we didn't get the wall street journal cover but london did after they copied san francisco, i want to commend the zoo for taking this step at a silent disco and they're doing it all around the world. >> thank you. >> richard? >> richard fong, commissioners, i'm looking at the zoo, there was a professor, terry, from florida, came over to acwc, animal control welfare commission, i w
a program that will be cost effective. i think for the city's perspective it makes more sense for the transportation department to do this than to have police officers performing this function. and very strong just by the police department to off load this function. >> motion to approve. >> 7.5 and 6? >> we have not taken it yet. >> chairman nolan: okay. all in favor say aye. >> ayes. >> chairman nolan: 10.6. >> amending transportation code by adding section 912 to authorize to regulate vehicle pressc9v permits and amend 902 o toronto. >> good afternoon. chairman, directors, barry toronto. i used to have one of these press vehicle permits about 30ky the police department. so if i understand it, you're issuing separate press passes to individual workers, media workers and issuing vehicle passes. i think it's weird to separate the two but this is3<;6]ku whatg on. the problem is if you're going to charge a fee which has not going to be too exorbitant a fee you will be excluding certain outlets over others. so the problem is, how are you going to determine this as a media. somebod
of them are in the same state and it's more extraordinary that both of them are in the same city, san francisco so congratulations. [cheers and applause] so for context i just want to mention a few things and this is no news to all of you here in the room and the people standing up with me today, but today in america more than 10 million people are living in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty and limited investment and opportunities for themselves and their children, and we know that one of the most important factors in determining the economic and financial success of peoples whether or not a child grows up in those high poverty neighborhoods? a. the fact that we can predict health, education outcomes of children based on the zip code, where they live is really a tragedy and it's not something that we as americans want to see as an outcome for the next generations and part of the obama's in fact and i have builds on this and the revitalization program and with choice neighborhoods including the planning grants we're announcing here in san francisco we intend to replicate that succ
of the okinawa city council. they've adopted a resolution demanding the japanese and u.s. governments take measures to prevent a similar incident from happening again. >> translator: okinawa seems like a lawless area, still occupied by the u.s. army. the anger and distrust of okinawans is at an all-time high. >> the document will be delivered to the japanese government and the u.s. military early next week. other town assemblies are expected to follow suit. in a separate move, okinawa governor hirokazu nakaima announced he will visit the united states sunday. he's aiming to meet with senior government officials to convey the anger of the okinawan people. >>> a joint chinese navy and air force fleet has conducted an exercise near a disputed group of islands in the east china sea. japan nationalized the senkaku islands last month. china and taiwan claim them as their own. 11 ships and eight aircraft from the navy, fishery administration, and marine surveillance agency took part in the exercise. the drill was based on the scenario that the crew of the patrol boat had fallen overboard and were
shown the rest of the world what a great city can be. as a gay teenager growing up in the south, struggling to accept myself in a place that was not supportive san francisco offered me hope and made me realize there would be a place for me in the world as a gay man. studying in our city's great university ucsf inspired me to dead cat my research. today san francisco and its institutions continue to inspire me. in a world grabingly with global warming i'm inspired to make san francisco the city with the highest per capita bicycle use and have a bicycle network that is safe and convenient for everyone. i am inspired by this vision but also deeply concerned. i worry for the safety of friends and family and my own safety whenever we ride our bikes in the city. despite progress that has been made installing new bike lanes we have had too many close calls with cars and recently a friend was hit by a car as he was biking to work. it still feels unsafe to ride a bike in san francisco and few places are as dangerous as oak and fell. i fully support this proposal and hope that you will as

you for your work. i really believe you go across the entire city above and beyond and you have done a lot of volunteering of your time. i'm sure you have done this a lot. i just want to say thank you for your service. it is really important. we rely a lot on you in the city. there should be more of you in terms of doing what you are doing so thank you. >> i think you are right. should be more of me but unfortunately there's only one of me and the entire san francisco say also can't find another one, even in sfpd or the d.a.'s office. >> can i just say that one thing that really angers me about these scams is many seniors are really isolated and don't have a younger person to talk with them about being careful, so they are so isolated that they don't talk to others. i'm hoping sf safe or the senior organizations and many community-based groups can do more to reduce that isolation for many older folks. but i think that is a broader issue than what law enforcement can deal with but i see that targeting vulnerable that are most isolated is what many criminals do. >> another thing is, a
encouraging that there will be meetings between the developer and city staff, kelley cone is going to be as it relates to the water front site, has already begin to have discussion and meetings with the planning department in preparation for cities plan that we have not seen yet. but, we have enough of the sense of directions that they are going in that we can begin to start that dialogue between the planning department and the port staff, and oewd and the developers and so, yes, that coordination is going on. >> okay, we are clearly pier 70 is a very, very important development for the port and it is obviously a combination of things, open space, historic buildings and the forecity development and so we will be watching it and hearing the progress rment report and how we will go forward with a lot of interest. >> i want to say that this is a very exciting project and there will be a lot of work that has to go into it, but i want to make sure that we take the dae into consideration and make sure whatever they are doing there they are in line with because our ship repair is very imp
joined the board of supervisors was to call a hearing on bedbugs in the city and county of san francisco. prior to that hearing actually a group of many of our residents from neighborhoods, chinatown and south of market and the tenderloin had been convening meetings fore over a year to discuss what we could do about the citywide epidemic that has been plaguing our neighborhoods. through the work group this legislation came forwards a series of recommendations on what we could do to better abate bedbugs and the bedbug abatement issue here in san francisco. this legislation will address three primary issues. the first of course is to actually collect data on bedbug abatement. so to require pest control operators to report to the department of public health on bedbug abatements and to have disclosures and create better information by the city and county of san francisco for tenants, our operators and for our property owners. so i wanted to call up two individuals who have been working very steadily on this project. mr. vining and miss chung. [ applause ] actually before i do that i wanted
do we -- the city, maintain a committee of able and committed members? as it stands the committee is all volunteer. the workload as of now are far too labor intensive to be sustained by a volunteer board. so as you just suggested perhaps staggering terms would be an excellent idea. but this is just one issue. the officers have collectively identified a number of issues and large-scale questions, but i believe we're at a point that some changes need to be made. first the committee need goes through some major changes such as do the standards of care continue to make sense at this time? they did at one time. but it might not make sense anymore and how can we as a committee without teeth enforce standards of care? how can we expect shelters to meet standards of care when they are unfunded? and what is a just penalty for non-compliance? certainly it doesn't make sense to fine somebody for not having enough money. so my purpose again is not to [pr-erpbt/] present frustration, but suggest a change and the committee will need the support of this committee going forward and mr. lacayo
in front of city hall. like you in san francisco, reduction of pollutants and greenhouse gases is a priority. you've seen how bicycle lanes throughout san francisco, even on our famous hills and after too long a delay, we ant pate launching our bike share program in 2013. our two cities have been in the forefront.in the fields of high-tech and digital media. digital sister cities. on your last visit in 2006 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of our partnership, we signed an accord being digital sister cities. this accord has facilitated numerous parisian company ins establishing companies in san francisco such as parisoma which we will visit tomorrow. and we see companies based in san francisco that create branches in paris such as soef fee nova whose ceo, a member of the city sister committee is with us today. there are many other examples of successful and flourishing business and commercial relations between our two cities, an atmosphere made part in possible due to the close working relationship between our two close municipalities. finally, as each of the mayors before me
to four separate organizations within the city, all of them volunteer, one of them is the nert, neighborhood emergency response team, i've contacted everyone talking about various issues, one of them was talking about the degaussing station, there was one of my neighbors that wasn't in favor of that. my concern is i believe the rent is high and i believe the initial cost to bring it up, the 650 thousand dollars is a large amount of money, i did bring this up to rec and park and asked them how they came across with the 10 thousand dollar rent per month and they based it on -- it was for the rent use of the bee chalet, i understand rec and park is slated with trying to generate revenue and i understand that way, i'm also concerned about the neighbors, about pollution, light, disturbances and those types of things, we one time went out with our group and handed out 280 flyers and they talked about the concerns with the [inaudible] of the marina, of those 280 responses x we had one person who responded to our notes. i don't feel in my opinion that was in this case, i think people
. and outreach organizer at central city collaborative, i have the opportunity and if they had known before they would have made a different choice. this legislation will help prospective tenants by knowing the two-year history of the unit. i thank supervisors kim and campos for introducing this legislation and i wanted to take this opportunity to ask everyone who worked and support this legislation to please stand up and be recognized. thank you.
